Siepser Laser Eyecare proudly announces that it is the only practice in the area offering the LENSAR® Laser System for cataract surgery. This advanced laser assists Dr. Siepser in making the removal of the cataract safer, quicker while providing outcomes that are consistently superior. Dr. Siepser is the first Main Line surgeon to have this revolutionary "blade free" laser technology in the Delaware Valley region and has introduced it at Wills Eye Hospital (the #2 ranked eye hospital in the United States) and its’ affiliates. If you or a family member have been told you have a cataract, the time could not be better to learn about your options with"Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery" with the LensAR system and Advanced (otherwise called specialized or premium lenses).
The LENSAR® Laser System is part of Dr. Siepser’s progressive cataract surgery arsenal with the goal of reducing patients’ dependency on glasses and contact lenses. Because the surgeon is employing the use of a laser, results are simply more precise and consistent than traditional manual methods. The blade free Femtosecond laser has the same proven technology used in LASIK procedures for over a decade. LensAR’s sophisticated 3-D imaging combined with Augmented Reality creates surgical openings more exact than those done manually.
Upgrading cataract surgery to an all laser method coupled with specialty lenses enables patients to see near, far and in between without dependence on glasses or contact lenses. The LensAr Laser System brings advancements in the phase of vision correction to individuals ages 50, 60, 70 and beyond. Now being glasses free with LASIK-like results is attainable for cataract patients. It’s the same freedom younger patients have benefited from with Laser Vision Correction for the last 20 years. It is now possible for patients of all ages to achieve maximum visual performance. And if you think 50 is too young to have a cataract, think again. While you may be interested in LASIK, it is possible a cataract has already begun to develop. If that's the case, you have more options! Dr. Siepser, himself is a recipient of vision correction surgery. Having been in your shoes, so you will find him not only knowledgeable regarding your options, but empathetic in your visual dependency and lifestyle needs.
We will continue to offer cataract surgery using traditional techniques. LensAR cataract surgery, however, coupled with laser refractive techniques offers significant advantages. During a traditional cataract procedure, the surgeon creates freehand, an opening to access and remove the cataract. Clinical studies show that the Femtosecond laser makes this opening almost 10 times more accurately. Think about drawing a circle by hand and trying to replicate it exactly ten times in a row. It is impossible to do. The laser, by contrast, can duplicate the circular incision needed for cataract lens removal and replacement with more precision and predictability. The same size and configuration can be made identically every time.
The LENSAR Laser softens and breaks up the hard cataract into tiny pieces, allowing for a gentler, easier cataract extraction. This is done with ultra-fast, extremely small pulses of air and water making micro-incisions. A circular opening in the lens capsule is created, facilitating perfect implantation of the new lens. Once completed, the flap is folded back, fitting into position within the laser shaped edges of the cornea. This technology is particularly important for patients choosing advanced or specialized lens technology whose goal is maximum independence from glasses.
Dr. Siepser is a leading physician in innovative surgery. The results are so reliable and the surgical procedure so effective that patients of all ages have more reason than ever to see if Vision Correction is right for them. Siepser Laser Eyecare is devoted to utilizing the safest FDA approved refractive opportunities tailored to suit a variety of visual needs.
